Pilates is a method of controlled movement which improves core strength, flexibility, balance, posture and body awareness.

It works by targeting the deep postural muscles, building strength from the inside out, rebalancing the body and bringing it into correct alignment. It helps to reshape your body, to become longer, leaner and more toned and will improve your posture, achieving the perfect balance between strength and flexibility. It’s also a great way to relieve unwanted stress and tension.
